Leading the Way
"I've been with Penn State for a long time, both as a student as
well as an employee. I'm very proud of my association with the University.
We enroll bright, capable students who graduate as highly successful
alumni; and we hire energetic, dedicated employees who make working
here fun and meaningful. In the future, I would like to see Penn
State's reputation for excellence continue to grow. I hope my contributions
add to this quest."

Penn State Intercom......April
for IST Building
Corp. has announced a $100,000 gift in support of the University's new
Information Sciences and Technology
The gift will directly support the Kimberly-Clark Display and Demonstration Laboratory, a public space where state-of-the-art technology will be showcased.
The 600 square-foot Kimberly-Clark Laboratory will be on the walkway level of the new building just steps away from the Cybertorium and the central atrium.
Ground was broken for the Information Sciences and Technology Building on Oct. 26, 2001. Currently, foundation and support-pile work is under way with steel erection to begin in late spring. In addition to providing classrooms, research labs and office space for the School of Information Sciences and Technology and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the building will span North Atherton Street (Business Route 322) with a pedestrian-safe bridge. Completion is expected in late 2003.
Kimberly-Clark is a leading global manufacturer of tissue, personal-care and health-care products with manufacturing facilities in 41 countries and product sales in more than 150. Employing more than 66,000 people worldwide, Kimberly-Clark posted sales of $14.5 billion in 2001. Nearly one-fourth of the world's population, or 1.3 billion people, use Kimberly-Clark products each year.
